as president. 76%-point gap that ties george w. bush's fourth year as the polarized year in gallup record. >> this made me feel good when i read it. i thought, you know what? you can't blame president obama. media gets him a pass. he will take it. that is how he operates. they haven't done their job but you can't fool the electorate. when you ask him what he has done often time the left think people are naive and they pool the wool over their eyes. this shows that you can't. they go you know what? not that big o a uniter. >> bob: if you look pew research did poll on the inaugural address. every issue he raised, big majority of the american people agreed with it. this is not one of those things he is so far behind of the american people. the pew -- they took -- >> dana: it's lik we will never be against letting poor people to starve to death and eat cat foot. we agree with that. >> bob: there are other polls out that thought he did a very good job. leaving that aside, if we get closer to parliamentary type of government. both sides went to extreme. if you're john boehner and may be more re

. ohio delivered the presidency for george w. bush. how we remember. this might be why reince priebus, reelected as the rnc chair, is so optimistic about the electoral future for the republicans. >> no state is that reliably a blue state. but it's up to all of us to decide if we're willing to fight for these states. it takes work. it's not going to happen overnight. but from what i've seen in wisconsin, we can make it happen. in two years, we all want to hear the words and the headlines republicans everywhere. >> well, this is the electoral map from the 2012 election. president obama won by four points in a large margin in the electoral college. this is what happens under the republicans' everywhere strategy. president obama still wins by four points, but loses the presidency in an electoral landslide. as long as this plan is out there, republicans will continue to downplay it. >> i would not be for it. i don't think there is any sort of national movement. and you have sort of convinced me that in virginia, there may not even be any state movement. it may be an isolated legislator. >>

's myanmar speech and john mccain snuck in a couple of winks during george w. bush's state of the union in 2007. a sleepless night is getting more common. a full 30% of civilian workers get less than six hours of sleep, says the cdc. the night shift is the worst. for instance, 70% of night shift workers and transportation and warehousing are sleep deprived. the best sleep? the finance industry along with educators at 27%. they don't take their laptops and phones to bed. the glow can simulate daylight and simulate sleep. with the 24-hour global economy it's tough to get unplugged. so businesses like pod time are seeing orders rise for stacked sleeping pods, stereos that help you get in the mood and racks for bedtime reading torl put away your laptop as well. insomniac classes are on the increase as well. late night yoga and meditation and they say bring your pajamas. and sleeping pill ads are everywhere. americans are doing just about anything and anywhere to grab some zs. and in fact, chris, you are probably wondering where i am right now. >> i wasn't actually, but -- >> where are you?
